What is Sciatica in Lexington KY?

Sciatica pain (termed “Sciatica”) typically occurs when the sciatic nerve in your lower back is irritated, inflamed, pinched, or compressed. The most common cause is a slipped or herniated disc in your back, which pressures the sciatic nerve. This nerve is the longest in the body running, with five nerve roots from your lumbar spine to your sacrum. Any injury to this nerve can cause pain through your lower back and down through your legs and feet. It’s rare to cause lasting damage to your sciatic nerve, and through treatment like personalized Chiropractic care, pain relief for Sciatica is possible!

While most sciatic nerve pain is caused by slipped or herniated discs, Sciatica can also be caused by certain medical conditions, including Degenerative Disc Disease, Spinal Stenosis (narrowing of your spinal canal), Spondylolisthesis (slippage of the vertebrae), Osteoarthritis (bone spurs) as well as trauma/injury, tumors, or any other neuromuscular disorders. Please seek medical attention if you begin to feel sciatic nerve pain.

Symptoms include

  • Pain in your lower back, buttock, and/or down your leg.
  • Weakness/Numbness in your lower back, buttock, and/or down your leg.
  • Loss of movement or pain that worsens with any activity.
  • “Pins and Needles” feeling anywhere from your buttock to your toes.
  • Loss of bladder and bowel control

It’s important to know where and when the pain started and if it worsens. These are good things to share at each chiropractic visit so that we can continually update your treatment plan. Make sure your primary medical provider is aware of any worsening medical conditions or symptoms.

Relief for Sciatic Nerve Pain

Chiropractic care is a realistic treatment to relieve sciatic nerve pain. Weekly chiropractic adjustments can help relieve any pain or pressure on your sciatic nerve. Time frames for pain relief and healing are different for every person and can depend on the underlying causes of sciatic nerve pain, general health of the person, etc. While our goal is to help relieve pain as quickly as possible, every healing process is different. We can help give you the tools to prevent further injury as well as recommend stretches and treatments at home. Our ultimate goal is to determine the root issue of your pain and come up with a plan to find relief for sciatic nerve pain.

Home Treatments After Your Visit

Ice and/or heat packs can be used in 20-minute intervals to relieve pain and swelling.
Over-the-counter medications. Please consult a medical professional on the proper medications and dosages.
Gentle stretches recommend by Dr. Pelphrey during your visits.
If any home remedies are relieving your pain or making it worse, please let your medical provider know as well as our staff on your next visit.

How to Prevent Sciatic Nerve Pain in the Future

  • Regular Exercise: Regular exercise helps keep your joints and muscles flexible while strengthening the muscles that support your spine.
  • Maintain a Healthy Weight: This is typically done through a balanced diet and regular exercise. Maintaining a healthy weight helps reduce strain on your spine.
  • Refrain from Smoking: Smoking reduces blood flow, weakening your spine and disks.
  • Maintain Good Posture: Maintaining good pressure helps relieve stress on your lower back and reduce soreness.
